Just got the car back last Wednesday, and then was away for work from Friday until today. So what was the first thing I did when I got back?

Yep drove the GTA :lol:. I only needed some bread and milk and could have gone to Sainsburys which is walking distance, but Asda is a nice little drive away :D

Anyone esle done the same after being away? or am I just mad?

Yep I do, everytime I get back from sea. I'm away this month and miss my GTA a lot.

I got the right @rse ache when we got back from holiday ... I had to pop out to pick up a curry and I couldn't find my car keys, I was stomping round the house demanding that people help me look for them (I got no help as I was the one who had hidden them before going away on holiday), so I had to take the Scenic ... I'd got a couple of miles down the road when I remembered where I'd put them :rolleyes:

I am taking mine to work today, needs a clean though. I like her to be sparking it turns more heads! Show off me? Attention seeker? Center of attention? Not me!

Just had a great run in the GTA: 220 miles - longest trip I've done since I bought it and the first time I've taken full advantage of the cruise control - very useful in those average speed camera sections on the M1.

Speaking of averages, managed 62mph average velocity and nearly 25mpg average consumption - not bad considering the smiles per mile were off the scale :cool:
